Default Bulls or Thunder?

Who is more of a contender this upcoming season? Who will have a better comeback, Rose or Westbrook?

In short, which team will be better this season?

Most likely Chicago.

OKC isn't even a contender this year and im an OKC fan. Unless they make some sort of significant move to boost up the bench, or if KD goes completely nuts, I dont see them being a big threat as some people think. I'd like to be wrong doe.

You can question Westbrook's sense of style or some of his strange plays but you can always trust his word ethic, Russell is going to have one of his best seasons. And OKC have a prime KD who can tear up any defense consequently taking the Thunder over the top.

If you are an OKC fan you are insane if you don't think OKC isn't a contender bro.

I think OKC will be weaker than last season, but with Westbrook healthy and actually playing, I like them too make the conference finals.

Once Westbrook comes back OKC will easily be better than last season

Lemme clarify. OKC pre-Westbrook injury is what I mean. I'm not talking about last years team without Westbrook.

Does anyone else believe James Harden leaving OKC is what will prevent them from not reaching the Finals?


They need to replace him, fast.

Scott Brooks honestly never used Harden that well in the first place.

He couldn't. I'm not defending Scott Brooks, because I know he's an inept coach. But 3 superstars on 1 team? Did we expect them all to average 22+? Just not enough basketballs to go around. It's not as if they didn't take turns doing their thing. They were very successful with it and could have won a championship had they grown from that. But playing in a small market, they couldn't afford to keep them all 3 with halfway decent players around them.

Heat role players >>>> Thunder role players. At least they show up in big games.

They need to make sure Lamb gets groomed nicely. We know Jackson will be there, Lamb has to take that next step. He can't be that much worse than Kevin Martin, especially on defense.

Well, Heat role players definitely do show up in big HOME games.

Yeah, you can usually count on one guy showing up in road games. Sometimes two. heat role players are notoriously home-game-centric.

Most role players, and especially most bench players are "home-game-centric". That's not just Heat specific.
